We talked to Jenevieve Ting, a queer, non-binary Chinese-American writer, artist, and lover boy about how they practice self-love and the mantra that guides them through life.
Jenevieve Ting (they/them) is a queer, non-binary, Chinese American writer, artist, facilitator, and lover boy. They are the co-editor & co-founder of Loves Me | Loves Me Not, a yearly Valentine's Day Zine. At their mooncake core, they believe that we are all fundamentally deserving of abundance, love, imagination, fresh lychee, and gender euphoria.
We chatted with them before this week's "Non-binary Identities in the Trans Community" panel as part of the FOLX Health & Wellness Summit and learned about their aura and mantra.
A: Like the inside of an abalone shell, iridescent, flushed with color.
A: By returning to that sacred jewel box within myself as often and as repeatedly as I need, and greeting each version of myself that returns with openness, forgiveness, care, and space.
A: One that needs lots of attention!
A: Saying thank you to my body for keeping me safe.
A: I close my eyes, breathe slowly, and try to identify three layers of sound around me until my breath feels more steady.
A: “Queer Love is Spacious” — there is time, room, and enough life to feel and move through whatever must be felt.
